The Tailor has been tasked to find the princess...
Upon decree from his king, Sebastian, Tailor to the entire kingdom of Dormiraa, embarks on the mission to fetch the Princess Thalia home, her seven year royal trip over. He didn't expect to find her working with clockwork and gears, encased within a coffin of glass. He did not expect the sight of her wild black hair to set his heart to pound, or the flash of her dark eyes would heat his blood. He did not expect he would want her so badly, not when he could never have her.
The princess must become the Queen...
Thalia has always known she must return to the capital to prepare for the throne. She did not expect her father to send the Tailor to fetch her, or that this man with his extravagant clothes and subtle cosmetics would intrigue her so well. There was something about him, something that spoke of danger and secrets, even as his wicked mouth and knowing eyes made her yearn.
However, not everyone desires the princess's return, and when they are attacked and suddenly alone, they can only turn to each other. Will they overcome status and secrets to discover a love for all time?
About the Author
I�m so thrilled to be a part of Beyond Fairytales. I�ve loved fairy tales from the time I was small, so when I heard about this new line from Decadent Publishing, I jumped at the chance to write one!
I must admit, when I was assigned �The Glass Coffin�, I had no clue what it was about. A quick glance about the net showed this tale was a take on Sleeping Beauty where a tailor finds a princess trapped in a glass coffin. Hmm. What I could I do with Sleeping Beauty? After all, the heroine is pretty passive in the tale, being asleep and all. So I put my thinking cap on and came up with a missing princess, a country that worships fashion and Tailor is the highest elected position one can obtain, and an adventuresome tale that could end in tragedy.
I hope you enjoy!
